“Ah, the 80s. Whether you were donning your finest spandex and getting tiddly on Cinzano or putting on the leathers and devil-fingering to Guns’n’Roses, it’ll still go down as the most diverse, eclectic and extravagant decade in recent cultural history,” according to NME list.
“We had New Order and Frankie Goes To Hollywood, U2, Prince and Cyndi Lauper, Springsteen, INXS, Bananarama, Duran Duran and the list goes on. Here, however, we whittle down a decade of societal decadence and political decay into the 100 tracks that defined it.”
The list is quite extensive and is a very arduous undertaking given the sheer diversity in genres and hits that were released in the 80s. We took a look at the list which featured a ton of gems that will have you bouncing over to YouTube. Some of these tracks you may want to put on repeat.
The list kicks off with Paul Simon’s “Graceland” at 100 and continues with Primal Scream’s “Velocity” coming in at 90, the S-EXPRESS theme at 80, Talking Heads’ “Road To Nowhere” at 70, Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine” at 60 and many more.
